Chapter 15 - Leases BRIEF EXERCISES Because none of the four classification criteria is met, this is an operating lease. Accordingly, LTT will record rent expense for each of the four \$25,000 payments, reducing its earnings by \$100,000 each year. Because none of the four classification criteria is met, this is an operating lease. Accordingly, Lakeside will record rent revenue for each of the four \$25,000 payments, increasing its earnings by \$100,000 each year. In addition Lakeside, as owner of the asset, will record depreciation. Assuming straight-line depreciation of the \$2 million cost over the 25-year life, that’s \$80,000 depreciation expense each year. So, earnings are increased by a net \$20,000 (\$100,000 – 80,000). Because this is an operating lease, Ward will record rent expense for each of the \$5,000 payments. The advance payment also represents rent, recorded initially as prepaid rent and allocated equally over the ten years of the lease. As a result, Ward’s rent expense for the year reduces its earnings by \$70,000 each year. \$5,000 x 12 = \$60,000 \$100,000 / 10 = 10,000 \$70,000 The lease is a capital lease to Athens because the present value of the minimum lease payments (\$20.4 million) is greater than 90% of the fair 15-1 Chapter 15 Leases Brief Exercise 15-1 Brief Exercise 15-2 Brief Exercise 15-3 Brief Exercise 15-4

Chapter 15 - Leases value of the asset (90% x \$22.4 million = \$20.16 million). None of the other three classification criteria is met. The present value of the minimum lease payments (\$20.4 million) is greater than 90% of the fair value of the asset (90% x \$22.4 million = \$20.16 million). Since the additional lessor conditions also are met, it is a capital lease to Corinth. Furthermore, it is a sales-type lease because the present value of the minimum lease payments exceeds the lessor’s cost (\$16 million). In direct financing leases, the lessor records a receivable for the present value of the lease payments to be received (\$2,500,000 for Sonic). The difference between the total of the lease payments (\$3,292,000 for Sonic) and the present value of the lease payments to be received over the term of the lease represents interest. Over the term of the leases, Sonic will report this amount (\$3,292,000 minus \$2,500,000 = \$792,000) as interest revenue, determined as the effective interest rate times the outstanding balance (net investment) each period. 15-2 Brief Exercise 15-5 Brief Exercise 15-6

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
